Welcome 2020

For the new year I will change my signature to my real name, Care, rather than Cuidado, which I have used for decades. There are a whole lot of Cuidados out there and even JustPictureIts.  Care is an unusual enough name that there should not be many other photographers using it. I may come out further to include my last name but it is unlikely to happen soon.

 

So, you can call me by my real name, Care, but I would imagine  Mary will persist for a while.

 

There are probably things in the lineup with Cuidado on them and I will continue to use old images with that nom de plume. Cuidado came about in 1981, the first time I went to Mexico and translated my name in the dictionary. Cuidado means care but also means careful and danger which are pretty hard to associate with me.

Happy Today to you, too, Care/Mary.
Care MacADNski: The year for 20/20 vision, Ray.
Je te souhaite une très bonne année et une bonne santé !
Care MacADNski: That is a wish I will happily and gratefully accept. Happy New Year to you, Martine.
Because Spanish is my second language, Mary, I've always liked Cuidado, knowing it's meaning. But CARE is beautiful, too, so Care you are. Happy New Year.
Care MacADNski: i became Mary to sign up here to check out this SC blog. Was going to change it and never did.

How did you get a name like CARE, were your parents hippies?
Care MacADNski: That make me laugh. The hippies were my generation. My father had a strong French accent and Mom kept choosing names that he could pronounce without it showing. Her first choice was Edith and Dad said E dit, like eat it.
What's in a name?

Care is a fine name
Care MacADNski: It's all I've known except for Darla by my youngest grandchildren. My oldest gc call me Grandma Care.

I will remember, Care. May 2020 be a year to love
Care MacADNski: One to look forward to with 20/20 vision, Lisl. A working year.

I judge you and your qualities by who you are and how you project your personality. Your desire to become Care is very personal to you ... l still see you as the same good person. ... Don’t stop.
Care MacADNski: I made up the name Mary on a whim. It went with MacADNski. I've come out!

I always thought "Care" is such a special name. I still remember our first contact about my "picturit"....
Care, these are wonderful pictures but then you live in a wonderful place.
Happy New Year and all the best wishes for you and your loved ones.
Care MacADNski: Have you looked up just picture it. There are many out there, some professional. As long as our data stays, with the dates, we are okay. It was time I used my own name.

A happy and healthy new year to you, Astrid. Look to the new year with 20/20 vision.
Beautiful images Care!
Happy New Year to you and your family! smile
Care MacADNski: Thank you so much. I hope to get out more this winter, for more winter images.

Interesting Cuidado, but I will still use the name Chad.
Care MacADNski: You so often call me Astrid and sometimes Bill, that I am used to being called names by you!
Care is such a nice, and as you say unusual, name and I am very happy to call you that from now on. Whatever you wish to be called it is the nice person you seem to be that matters and so I wish you and your family a very happy new year.
Care MacADNski: If I'd been a boy I was going to be called Brian. I may have told you that before. Have a wonderful 20/20, Brian and Maureen.

The sun rising behind the trees and the collage are both beautiful. So's the name Care, which I haven't heard as a name before. All the best for 2020.
Care MacADNski: I know one other Care. Her birth certificate says Carrie but she has always been called Care.

Happy 2020to you and yours, Louis. Enjoy summer!

Well I never! That's a surprise. Happy New year, Care.
Care MacADNski: Thanks, Alan. It is about time I dropped the Mary.
Thanks ___ (fill in the blank) smile I suspect that this is another pseudonym to continue the mystery!
Care MacADNski: Your suspicion is mistaken. Care is my real name, Tom.

I am a bit confused about your different names. If Care is your real name, then I'll call i nthis way. I wish you also a blessed new year.
Care MacADNski: My real name is Care. Cuidado is Care in Español. Mary was something I mad up when I joined ShutterChance.
Happy New Year, Care!
I'm glad you've gone back to your real name. I remember the elation I felt after my divorce - in getting my maiden name back! It felt like I'd fully become myself again!
Beautiful images to start 2020 out with!
Care MacADNski: I should think about doing that, my maiden name. I am so proud of it's history.
